REPORT OF THE PRESIDENT. 

Chicago, January, i, 1910. 

To His Excellency Charles S. Deneen, 

Governor of the State of Illinois, 
Springfield, Illinois. 

Sir: In accordance with the provisions of an Act 
entitled : '' An Act to encourage and promote the establishment 
of free public libraries in cities, villages, and towns in this 
State" (IlUnois), approved June 17, 1891, under which this 
corporation is organized, the Trustees of The Newberry 
Library submit their eighteenth annual report for the year 
1909. 

A change in the librarianship of the library occurred 
during the year, by the resignation of Mr. John Vance 
Cheney, and the election of Mr. W. N. C. Carlton, Librarian 
of Trinity College, Hartford, Connecticut, who brought to 
us a successful experience of seventeen years. Mr. Carl- 
ton assumed the duties of Librarian on July first. 

With this exception there has been no change during the 
year in the officers of the Institution, and the Board of 
Trustees remains the same. 

A list of thfj Trustees and Officers, with members of the 
standing committees, is given in Exhibit I. 

Exhibit II presents a list of the Trustees from the 
organization of the Library in 1892 to the present time. 

The Annual Report of the Librarian, appended hereto 
and marked Exhibit III, presents the general condition of 
the Library, and also the statistics, including the acces- 
sions during the year by purchase and gift, of books, 
pamphlets, maps, manuscripts, etc., of 13,200 pieces, mak- 
ing the aggregate of literary material for the entire Library, 
at this date, 259,342. Special attention is called to the 
presentation by the Librarian of the character of the 
accessions, and also to the number of current serials re- 
ceived, both by purchase and also by gift. Of this depart- 
ment of literature, numbering a total of 880 periodicals, 
600 are in the English language, and 280 in languages other 
than English. An interesting table showing their dis-

tribution by subjects and language is appended to the 
Librarian's report. 

Other points of interest presented by the Librarian, 
relating to the general administration of the Library, 
including the attendance and use of the Library ; Inter- 
Library Loans; the work of classification and cataloguing; 
the Genealogical Index; and the Bindery, will indicate the 
work which is steadily going forward in this institution, 
through which the generous designs of its Founder are being 
realized, in the advancement of the intellectual and moral 
life of the city where h'S active life was spent. 

The statement of "Inter-Library Loans," made during 
the past year, is of interest, as showing the care used in 
the administration of this wise provision for the extension 
of the influence of a " Reference Library''' as also the appre- 
ciation of other Libraries and Societies of our collections. 

Exhibit VII presents the location of the several Depart- 
ments of the Library ; and Exhibit VIII a list of the donors 
and their donations during the year. 

In addition to the acknowledgments, which have been 
officially made to the several donors of documents to the 
Library, the Trustees would, in this public report, express 
their appreciation of the thoughtfulness that has made 
this institution the recipient of their gifts. 

Exhibit IX presents a statement of the assets of The 

Newberry Library, on December 31, 1909, with the real 

estate; also the expenditures for books, pamphlets, maps, 

and fittings of the Library, from its foundation to date. 

Respectfully submitted. 

E. W. Blatchford, 

President.

ANNUAL REPORT OF THE LIBRARIAN. 

To the Board of Trustees, 

The Newberry Library. 

Gentlemen: I have the honor to submit herewith the 
report of the Librarian for the year 1909. The statistics 
given are taken from the records currently kept in the 
Library. 

Increase of the Library. The accessions by pur- 
chase numbered 7,172 volumes, 4,062 pamphlets, maps, 
and charts, a total of 11,234 pieces. There were received 
by gift 1,228 volumes, 738 pamphlets, manuscripts, etc., a 
total of 1,966 pieces. The whole number of items added 
during 1909 was 13,200, making a grand aggregate for the 
entire Library of 259,342 books, pamphlets, maps, manu- 
scripts, and other pieces of literary material. 

The most notable acquisition of the year was the collec- 
tion of material gathered for us in China by Dr. Berthold 
Laufer. His own words best describe it: "The present 
collection comprises: (i) All Tibetan literature I was able 
to secure at Darjeeling and in Sitkim, i.e. Tibetan literature 
printed in Tibet; (2) all Tibetan and Mongol books which 
have ever been printed at Peking, as far as available at 
present; (3) a fine and complete copy of the Tibetan Kan- 
jur, the famous collection of religious Buddhist books in 
Tibetan, in 102 folio volumes, brought from Lhasa to 
Peking by the Dalai Lama on his recent visit [there] ; (4) a 
choice collection of Japanese illustrated books, of great 
value to students of Japanese art and culture....; (5) 
a splendid Chinese library, which is very strong in history, 
lexicography, philosophy, and encyclopaedias, and abounds 
in magnificent old editions. There are no less than thirty- 
seven works coming down from the time of the Ming 
dynasty (1368-1648), the oldest being dated 141 5. This 
material, properly arranged, would show the entire develop- 



lo The Newberry Library 

ment of East Asiatic printing, book-making, and wood- 
engraving." 

Every subject within the special scope of the Library 
has been represented in the purchases made of current and 
recent publications. Special additions, varying in extent 
from fifty to three hundred titles, have been made in the 
following subjects: English literature. Geography, Gene- 
alogy, French history, Spanish history, and the United 
States Civil War (regimental histories chiefly). Other 
purchases were: A complete set of the publications of the 
International Musikgesellschaft, and the collected works of 
the following musicians : Peter Cornelius, Christoph Gluck, 
Andrew Gretry, Joseph Lanner, Orlando Lassus, Johann C. 
Lowe, and Jan Sweelinck; the Japan Society's Proceedings 
and Transactions, Journal and Proceedings of the Society 
for Psychical Research (35 volumes), The Pandit, a Monthly 
Journal devoted to Sanskrit (39 volumes), Preussische 
Jahrbiicher, 1 858-1 909 (135 volumes), Transactions and 
Proceedings of the Royal Irish Academy (59 volumes), 
Miinchener Geographische Studien (22 volumes), Recueil 
des travaux relatifs k la Philologie Egyptienne (31 volumes), 
Studien zur englischen Philologie (31 volumes). Quarterly 
Series, edited by the Jesuit Fathers (loi volumes). 

A complete list of those who have given books follows

the use of the books on the following subjects : Philosophy, 
Religion, History, Economics, Sociology, and Education,
